Stockholm Syndrome

According to wikipedia, Stockholm syndrome is a psychological response sometimes seen in abducted hostages, in which the hostage shows signs of loyalty to the hostage-taker, regardless of the danger or risk in which they have been placed.

Let me rephrase that into less specific terms. Stockholm syndrome is a psychological response sometimes seen in people detained against their will, in which those detained begin to adapt their thinking in line with those who are detaining them, regardless of the extreme circumstances in which they find themselves.

How is that different from rehabilitation?

Just a thought.
